However, I think we can get diverted from the real issue by getting caught up in translations of various words. Christians as a group believe that you have to accept Christ as your Savior to be forgiven the sins of Adam (which is bizarre even if there had been an Adam) and of yourself, and to believe Christ died to take away those sins, which is also bizarre because someone cannot pay for something that some bad person might do several thousand years in the future.
Would we on a human level not try a murderer for a murder because some murderer died 2000 years ago to pay for all future murders? The author of those stories was spinning children's fairy tales, and a child's mind might see it as meaningful, and all those millions of adults who still believe that are never losing their 'child's mind' when it comes to religious beliefs.
While many mainstream churches no longer talk about a specific Hell, I think the idea is still that in order to attain the mythical Heaven you have to do what is believed is necessary to get there. Perhaps the alternative is that you just don't get the good stuff when you die.
However, all that to me is nonsense, because I strongly believe that when you die, the lights go out, and you are no more. Your only existence after that point is whatever evidence and memories you left behind for those who still have not died.
My father, who died in March 2002, is still with me, but not that I sense his presence as a spirit in the room with me, but I remember him often, and various things I see renew those memories of him. But his being here is 100% my own imagination.
On the other hand, my mother who is devoutly religious, lives alone in a 4 bedroom farmhouse, in a relatively isolated rural area, with one other home near where the people can see her house, originally my grandparent's home, and now my 1st cousin resides there but it belongs legally to my brother who lived in it until he left farming in the early 90s.
When Dad was alive she claims she would have been afraid to live alone, but now that he is dead, she feels safe alone because she feels that Dad is still there taking care of her. My parents were the son and the granddaughter of 1st cousins with the same family name, and they knew each other all of my mother's life, because Dad was 4 years older, were raised about 1 mile apart with part of my father's home farm backing onto my mother's home farm, all of which my father and then my brother and I owned in later years.
I don't believe that Dad's spirit is actually in the home with Mom, but rather she has a hyper sense of Him because her memory of Him is all she has left. However, what works for her, I am not about to blow away in her presence, because she is dealing with life very well.

I agree and I think I told him several times that he was totally in the wrong. I am responding to this a couple hours after you responded to me, so hopefully, I have not veered off topic again.

BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAA HA!
At least you won't have to worry about the glare coming off the pages...
You are sounding more and more like a person who is not a very nice person, in general. Is that because I have not read most of your posts, or is it because you are sounding worse all the time? Perhaps you can explain to me how you justify your position on the side of a believer in God, with the attitude you are demonstrating.

No OCB. I'm right. I'm not defending RR. He made a decision that I might not have made.
I am a very excellent fighter. I am not afraid of tangling with anyone and sadly I've enjoyed the fights that I have been in. With that being said, that is the reason that I avoid them. Sounds strange, I know. But I realize that having the ability, the power to do so doesn't necessarily make it right and I could very easily hurt someone badly. That would not be right either.
With respect, Al, and being a person who likely would have been killed had I ever got into a hand to hand fight with another adult male, I think your experiences sound like a lot of what we watch on tv movies, but I would highly not recommend it, as except where you are going to die for sure, you are not always going to be the toughest guy in the place. You just might get hurt worse than you have even imagined, but allowed to live.:)

I realize that I am likely a much more passive person, likely necessarily, but I think non violence is always the best route. It leaves more options for better solutions open. Having said that when I hear someone going by in a car with the windows up and the speakers in his vehicle playing rap, which must be about 1000 times the limit of what will totally destroy his hearing, my immediate thought is KILL. I however have not even attracted the other's attention to give him the finger. I just absorb my disgust and go on.

Perhaps somewhere in that you might note that I do not like rap. It is an offshoot of the type of music that comes from the Islands such as the ones that my wife was born in, but she can't stand rap either, or loud music. We both love music though.

I have, however, never been that fond of what music is popular during any of the past decades, but a couple decades later they sound very good in comparison to the current pop. That happened with me with Elvis, the Beatles, and others. My father and I used to listen to classical music on a radio in the barn when we were milking cows.

I love most classical, as does my wife, but not opera, in most cases. I also love the old western music; not so much country rock, or the more recent western singers. But except when alone I have never been able to listen extensively to country, because none of my partners particularly liked it.

You might note that I have gone off in many non topic tangents today. The question is have I done it more than most days or about the same.:(

No way! OCB's wrong?!?!?
The term Caucasian race has been used to denote the general physical type of some or all of the populations of Europe, North Africa, the Horn of Africa, Western Asia,parts of Central Asia and South Asia.
Historically, the term has been used to describe many peoples from these regions, without regard necessarily to skin tone.
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Caucasian_race
I am what they'd call "white". But I am NOT white, I am NOT caucasian (an asian with a cauc), I am American. That's MY race.
You blew it on that last sentence, RR, although I was going to try to debate you on the first part. American is a nationality, not a race. You don't understand what the word race means if you say American is a race, because people of all races live in the USA, and none of those races are called "American'.

Actually I have never heard anyone make that statement before and am guessing that you are just pulling our leg to keep this insane topic going. Otherwise I would have to think that you didn't get far enough in school to know how to operate a computer; granted my pre-schooler grandkids operate computers, but I think that generation are an entirely different story.

You're too paranoid, boooots. To hear loud rap & think "kill"?? That's nuts.

I don't like rap at all, either. But I've hung out with some of those guys and lemme tell ya, if they're your buds & shit goes down, they WILL have your back.

You seem to let it slide was CAUSED that whole chain of events.
Dude decided (or CHOSE, for you) to break my lock, open my truck door, jimmy the ignition, drive away, meet his dealer to trade expensive tools for cheap speed, drive back into town, go to 7-11....
It was all HIS FAULT. You seem to be missing that very crucial point.
If dude hadn't stolen my truck, none of it would've ever happened.
RR, are you really as uneducated and as low of a lifeform as you are coming across or are you just into drugs or alcohol and having a good laugh at our expense, making us argue with you over some made up story? The more you tell the story the more obvious you should have done some serious jail time, if you story is true.
